Boyfriend Jeans + Florals

Here's a new outfit post for you all, finally! It's a casual Summer evening look with my new boyfriend jeans. I attempted to stay awake & enjoy the gorgeous day as long as possible after my 4AM shift... So if I'm looking somewhat sleepy-eyed I've got a good excuse. My 60 hour work week is certainly taking it's toll. It's just the beginning & I'm already wondering how I"m going to make it through the Summer in one piece!

A few words on the outfit: I re-attached the pussy-bow tie to my floral Zara blouse to mix things up & threw on my new favourite jeans (if you're interested in buying them they run a little big I think; these are a 0 & a bit too big around the waist for me). Ever-simple with the accessories, I wore some simple pointy-toed black heels, my standard MK watch, & my favourite MK bag.

Speaking of which... my Michael Kors Vanilla Hamilton bag tragically fell prey to my carelessness & a pair of indigo jeans on Monday. After only 20 minutes of rushing to work, about a fifth of the back was bright blue. I was pretty much traumatized. Thankfully the girls at Michael Kors Metrotown very sweetly attempted some damage control for me. It's still there, but is now more of a faded blue than horrifyingly bright. Lesson learned. 

Don't mind the crazy hair static.... 

Last but not least: I'm currently working on answering all your lovely comments every spare chance I get! Please have patience with me, I'm honing my time management skills ;)  Until then, hope you're all having a fabulous week! 

I was wearing:
Boyfriend Jeans - Gap (here)
Floral pussybow blouse - Zara
Gold Chronograph watch - Michael Kors (here in USD)
Hamilton Tote - Michael Kors (here in USD)
